Forico

We've helped place a financial value on Tasmania's forests.

We've helped place a financial value on Tasmania's forests

Our natural environment requires valuing in order to protect what matters. That's why KPMG Australia worked with Forico, to assure certain larger value of the forests and landscapes under their management.

A leading natural capital report was prepared by Tasmanian forest custodians, Forico, with KPMG Australia providing limited assurance services. Understanding and valuing the most material ecosystem assets on the 172,328 hectares of managed plantation and natural forest estate, led to Forico conservatively calculating a Net Natural Capital Value of $3.37 billion. This included the value provided to both the business and wider community of CO2 sequestration, erosion prevention, natural habitat conservation, water flows and 10.9 million green metric tonnes of standing timber for use in future renewable wood and paper products. The formation of the report was an Australian first, and will enable Forico to reward sustainable investment, promote improved transparency in reporting, engage the community and share their story of their role in the sustainable management and preservation of Tasmania's forests for the long-term benefit of the communities in which they operate. And, as KPMG is Forico's ongoing natural capital partner, that's just the start of what can be achieved.

Results:
  • Allows for a more complete and balanced decision-making process and resource allocation beyond the traditional financial outcomes to also consider the businesses' impacts and dependencies on the environment, society and its people.
  • Inspires others on how they too can start to tell their own story of value preservation and creation.
  • Measures what matters and finds a way to monetarise these important ecosystem services to reward responsible investment in environmental stewardship.
  • Work is currently underway to prepare Forico's FY21 Natural Capital Report with KPMG assurance to continue the journey to expanding into other important measures of natural capital value.
Challenges:
  • A new and emerging field of development in accounting and reporting with limited standardisation, case studies and guidance available to date.
  • Contentious area with many special interest groups and competing agendas.
  • Limited public awareness around natural capital reporting.
  • Urgency and importance to address climate change impacts with credible information and actions.

  • Environmentalism & ecosystems

Argyle Foods Group

We're growing the ability to track and trace meat in the global food supply, with KPMG Origins.

We're growing the ability to track and trace meat in the global food supply, with KPMG Origins.

Ensuring quality animal and meat traceability data is an increasingly vital part of global food supply chains. KPMG Origins is a blockchain-based platform that is helping do that and more.

KPMG Origins is an easy-to-use blockchain-based traceability platform that allows businesses to track all aspects of their supply chain here and abroad, instantaneously. For meat company Argyle Foods Group, this is transforming their beef exports to a large global retailer in Taiwan. Data is automatically captured from a large array of supply chain databases and IoT devices, including the National Livestock Identification Scheme, to track the movement, growing conditions and quality of their cattle. It's then enriched with meat processing, quality assessments, logistics, export documentation and in-transit IoT data, for real-time temperature and location tracking. The result is greater transparency into the quality of their cattle and beef products, data to validate their 'clean & green' product claims, all while achieving a digitised and automated value chain.

Results:
  • KPMG Origins has made it easier to see the information shared between supply chain participants.
  • Automate the data transfer between participants' systems.
  • Full traceability from paddock to shelf.
  • Differentiated AFG's premium product range.
  • Identify opportunities for future growth and value in AFG's supply chain.
Challenges:
  • Data standardisation across value chain participants.
  • International compliance.
  • Sharing data and certifications.
  • Traceability
  • Food supply chains
  • Blockchain
  • IoT Tracking
  • Quality assurance
  • Compliance

She Dreams Big

We're helping young girls grow into tomorrow's leaders.

We're helping young girls grow into tomorrow's leaders.

Gender bias and stereotypes start young. So, KPMG collaborated on an original series of star-studded children's storybooks to help young girls dream big.

'She Dreams Big' is a social enterprise that came to KPMG Australia looking for clarity and guidance. Their intentions are noble - to address gender bias, which research suggests emerges young. Initially combined with a children's bedding offering, we helped structure their business and simplify their proposition – collaborating on a series of storybooks that represent women growing into a variety of leadership roles. From journalists to environmental scientists, each character is supported by a team of technical problem solvers. The books are designed to be read interactively with parents/caregivers and girls, and were launched on International Women's Day with prominent Australian figures including Sandra Sully, Cate Campbell and Lauren Parker.

Results:
  • Business structured for future growth and important network connections established.
  • Helping young girls aspire to careers where women are underrepresented.
  • Future instalments to focus on women in sport.
Challenges:
  • Simplifying and establishing the business proposition.
  • Marketing and reaching consumers in a cost-effective manner.
  • Cash flow and budget were key considerations.
  • Gender equality
  • Stereotypes and bias
  • Inclusivity
  • Art and writing
